An apprentice identified as Onome has died after allegedly being beaten by his boss simply identified as Orunor in Sapele, Delta State.

Punch reports that the incident occurred at the Delta carpenter’s workshop located along New Ogorode Road, Sapele few days ago. Aside from disciplining his apprentice over “lateness to work,” Orunor had also accused Onome of stealing his Automated Teller Machine card.

It was reportedly resolved that the boy should be disciplined decisively through beating.

However, the alleged beating took a new twist for the apprentice who, on reaching home, was said to have complained of pains all over his body, to his parents. He reportedly told his parents about the beating he got but after they took him to the hospital for treatment, he died before he could be attended to.

When Orunor, master to the apprentice, was intimated of the demise of the boy, he allegedly went into hiding.

Two out of the three children of the same parents, who were abducted by a motorcyclist in Amaba Ime, Ikwuano LGA of Abia State, have been rescued and brought back to their parents.

They were rescued in Ekwulobia and Nkpor, two different towns in Anambra State, by security operatives.

The rescue of the two children was confirmed by the Chairman of Ikwuano LGA, Mr Osinachi Nwaka when he received the members of Online Media Practitioners Association of Nigeria, Abia State chapter, led by Promise Uzoma Okoro.

The local government chairman, who disclosed that a Reverend Sister who is a member of a child trafficking syndicate has been arrested in connection with the case, added that the Reverend Sister is being detained by the police.

He noted that the disappearance of the three children gave him a sleepless night which prompted him to organize a series of meetings with various arms of security agencies.

The Ikwuano LGA Chairman, who praised the efforts of Governor Alex Otti, Abia State Commissioner of Police and heads of other security agencies in the state in the rescue of the children, assured that the remaining one will soon be found.

The Mayor solicited the cooperation of OMPAN members and the general public to unravel the masterminds of the illicit trade in order to bring them to book for a safer Abia.

“There are syndicates in every local government that trade on children. It amazes me that a man that bought one of the first boys paid N1.8m to buy life.

“A Reverend Sister is the middle person that distributes the children and collects her cut, she’s wearing white and still in state CID till today,” Nwama said.

He advised parents to be more careful about the whereabouts of their children and cautioned schools against sending pupils away from school because of non-payment of school fees.
